Restricted Mode on YouTube allows users to filter out “possibly mature video” by employing title, description, metadata, and age restrictions. Additionally, it prevents you from viewing any comments on any videos.
If you’re logged into the YouTube account you used to set up Restricted Mode and you’re using a computer or smartphone, turning off Restricted Mode should only take you around a minute.
This is so that restricted mode may have been enabled by some administrators, such as those at libraries and universities. In that situation, only the administrator who initially switched it on has the authority to do so.
To disable Restricted Mode on YouTube using a desktop computer or mobile app, follow these instructions.
